Thunderf00t vs Westboro Baptist Church

Thunderf00t vs Westboro Baptist Church

(19:01) YouTube atheist Thunderf00t interviews Margie and Megan Phelps from Westboro Baptist Church. It's a difficult discussion that feels as if it could turn to fists at any moment. Thunderf00t finally got to ask whether Jesus endorsed homosexuality. That question swiftly ended the interview.

Shortly after the nuts at WBC launched "godhatessweden" I E-mailed them asking them to justify thier massive misinformation, and their responses were simply childish and immature. ... If I'd known they'd become celebrities I'd have saved the E-mails! :D

As a person of deep faith, I find Margie and Megan's approach very, very sad, and completely contrary to the teachings of Jesus, and common decency and humanity. It appears that Thunderf00t set up the meeting, and he is on their turf, but I hate to see Christians behaving like Richard Dawkins.

the universe according to the bible can be a maximum of 12,000 light years in diameter (because the universe is ever expanding and was created 6,000 years ago...). The Andromeda Galaxy is ~200,000 light years across. ergo the bible in it's literal interpretation is worthless

"God" is a belief, not believing in something that can no be demonstrated as real is not a " religion". Religion is a system of unsubstantiated beliefs, there is no evidence to support any of these beliefs. Atheism is not a belief system, it's a life affirming way of living, living in the real world as it is.

They are both as bad as each other. This is not an intellectual discussion, it's one belief talking to another belief. BORING!!! What did Thunderf00t really think he'd achieve? Any religion that thinks they should hate to follow their beliefs is not a true religion. The Westboro Baptist Church is a complete joke.

---At it with the done-to-death Westboro once again. Time to step away from WBC and swing them cameras around on 'the Big Boys' of elite Gobalism and their stated, on record belief system ---Social Darwinism--ie EUGENICS.

I'm not going to watch this. I have no idea what happens in the clip but I really do suggest to everyone that these people really must be ignored as much as possible. They feed off of any publicity - however negative we think it is, they love it. They are vile.

Like you, Juniper, I don't intend to watch this. BoreMe has nailed its colours to the mast with regard to the religion/atheist debate (at least as far as I'm concerned) so, from the comments added already, this would appear to be like the gladiatorial events of Rome - pitting people against each other for public entertainment. Might I just add that I don't believe Westboro Baptists do anything to further the cause of genuine religious faith.

Latest comment: Lynch, I am not sure I follow your rationale: You seem to be saying that if people of faith are being bullied and pilloried by Dawkins, and Hitchins and others, then it is within the editorial policy of BoreMe, but if the shoe is on the other foot it bothers you. For the record, I think Thunderf00t is impudent and waggish, and the women vile, and I agree the argument never nears any attempt to understand by either side, and maybe that is your point. I think the strength of the BoreMe position is that they don't typically shy away from the debate, even when it gets ugly.
